Not sure what this is. At first thought a bird nest.
Then again maybe not. Did the wind blow it into the tree?
Or did someone place it here. It was hanging by a thread.
A mystery for sure.
Some type of foundation was here.
Oooh... a trail we never noticed before!...
...and oh so beautiful...
...that once again lead to a dead end.
HUGE bushes of poison oak.
That pile of rocks used to spell out Zack in memory.
Someone moved them to make a campfire.
This is a TREE of poison oak!
Laura taking a picutre of me...
...taking a picture of her.
This looked like a deer to me.
We just love our buckeye trees and this one was beautiful
with lots of little buckeyes underneath.
More poison oak. We never realized they had
buds/berries on them.
Think they mean business?
Serious spikes on this baby.
It's always so windy on this part of the trail.
So windy it whipped my scarf right from my
hand and around my face.
Raptor flying in the wind.
Back (neck) scratcher.
Looks like rain.
